I installed a guest system directly on a LVM volume of my host.  I mean this 
volume does not
contain a partition table, but directly an ext3 fs.

When I try to use pygrub on it, I receive :

    fs = fstype.open_fs(fn, offset)
  File "/usr/lib/python/grub/fsys/ext2/__init__.py", line 35, in open_fs
    return Ext2Fs(fn, offset = offset)
ValueError: unable to open file
Error: Boot loader didn't return any data!

I checked the values for fn (this is well my LVM volume device driver) and 
offset (0 as it must be
if I understand correctly).

The volume can be mounted without problem by the host, and was formatted by the 
command "mke2fs -j

Has someone an idea ?

Thank you

Robert Hendrickx.
